Corsair confirms Nvidia's nForce 590 SLI

New DIMMs made with auto-overclocking in mind

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Corsair has let slip Nvidia's name for the chip maker's upcoming chipset series. The Memory company today announced a pair of DDR 2 DIMMs "fully optimised to work with new motherboards based on the upcoming Nvidia nForce 590 SLI".

The Corsair announcement appears to confirm claims that the nForce 500 series will automatically overclock itself and connected components. Corsair said the two 2GB modules, designed to be clocked at 800MHz and 1066MHz, respectively, feature technology called Serial Presence Detect (SPD) Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP) which allows "automatic overclocking". Essentially, the motherboard can use information embedded in the DIMM to calculate the memory performance parameters and overclock accordingly.

The 1066MHz DIMM operates at latencies of 5-5-5-15, while the 800MHz part offers 4-4-4-12.

Corsair said the modules are "designed to support current and upcoming Intel platforms and, of course, the AMD AM2 processor and platforms that are about to be released".

AMD's AM2 announcement is expected to take place next Monday, 23 May - not coincidentally, we're sure, the same day Nvidia is believed to have scheduled the nForce 500 unveiling. ®
